Business, French Language & Electives - The American Business School Paris -The American Business School Paris

The American Business School Paris (ABSP) allows students the opportunity to prepare for a successful international career in one of the most exciting and dynamic cities in the world. Providing an innovative approach to business through its commitment to diversity, openness, and respect for what is different, the ABSP prepares students for a wide range of possibilities and professions in the business world.

Courses are taught by a team of international professors and lecturers who tailor-make coursework based on their own unique backgrounds and career experiences. Students will learn how to work on a team in multi-cultural settings, gain practice in international case studies, and prepare for a successful international career.

This program offers a wide variety of subjects including business, management, economics, marketing and humanities. Courses are taught in English in a classroom comprised of approximately 30% French students and 70% students from 60-80 different countries around the world.

It is recommended that students who have not completed one semester/quarter of college-level French or the equivalent elect to take a language course through this program. The equivalent of one semester of college-level French is 3 years of high school French.

While most universities accept official transcripts issued by the American Business School Paris (ABSP) for coursework taken abroad, some universities or institutions do require a U. S. transcript in order to transfer credit. ISA has partnered with California Lutheran University to serve as the School of Record for those students requiring a U.S. transcript for ABSP programs. If you have confirmed with your home university that you will require a U.S. transcript, or are interested in learning about this option, please contact your Program Manager or Site Specialist as soon as possible.

Gap students, 18 years old and older, are also eligible for this program.

Courses are taught by host university faculty at the main campus of the American Business School Paris with the exception of two courses that are held at the Eaubonne Campus, just outside of Paris.
